The Cork-Lined Room

I really like The Cork-Lined Room.  The discussion of Proust is excellent with its use of quotes and detail and yet is something every reader can follow--in other words its not too "academic." 

Small confession:  I used to be in the academic camp and somehow migrated to genre fiction where I'm not really at home either.  A wanderer in the city of narrative.

The link to the post with wonderful reflections on Mme. Verdurin, Odette and Marcel is below:

What a cursor-full! 

I always like to see how an author handles flowers.  

Odette, the other one
